Today we have a “Palestinian” shot by Israeli security forces and then taken to an Israeli hospital after trying to run through an Israeli checkpoint while screaming “Allahu akbar,” and an Israeli shot dead by “Palestinians” while riding in a car. Guess which one will be accorded the moral high ground by the Western intelligentsia and the international media.
The Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine is a Marxist group, but it is a servant of the jihad imperative, for were it not for the maximalist command to “drive them out from where they drove you out” (Qur’an 2:191), there would have been a peaceful solution to the Israel/”Palestinian” conflict long ago — which is not to say that the Israelis actually drove out the Muslim Arabs in significant numbers. They were told to leave in 1948 by Muslim leaders, who assured them that they would soon be able to return, once Israel was destroyed.
“Young Israeli dies from wounds suffered in West Bank shooting,” JTA, June 30, 2015:
JERUSALEM (JTA) — The young Israeli man critically injured in a drive-by shooting by Palestinians in the West Bank has died.
Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld died Tuesday afternoon, less than a day after the car he was riding in with three other men came under attack on a major West Bank road near the Shvut Rachel and Shiloh settlements. The victims, all in their 20s, were returning to their homes in the Kochav Hashahar settlement after playing basketball.
The driver and two other passengers also were hospitalized with injuries.
Police said that two Palestinian attackers fired on the car after waiting at the side of the road for an Israeli vehicle to pass. At least 15 bullets hit the car, Ynet reported, citing an initial investigation. The attackers fled the scene and are at large.
The road is used freely by Israelis and Palestinians.
Photos of the bloody interior of the car were circulated on social media.
“Attempts to attack us do not halt even for a moment,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Tuesday morning at the start of his meeting with Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentilloni, adding that the Shin Bet security service and the Israel Defense Forces have foiled dozens of terrorist attacks since the start of the year and over 200 since 2014.
“The fact that up until now, the Palestinian Authority has not condemned these attacks needs to bother not only us, but also the international community as a whole. Those who do not take an unequivocal stand against terrorism cannot wash their hands.”
Two Palestinian terror groups, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and Fatah al-Intifada, claimed responsibility for the attack, Haaretz reported….
